    ACTION was aplenty in Birchip today.

    On a card highlighted by the popular Mallee Bull Cups, three tracks records fell by the wayside.

    Veteran squaregaiter Imperial Whiz got the ball rolling in the Trotters’ Cup by overcoming a 40-metre back mark to score in impressive fashion.

    With champion horsewoman Kerryn Manning in the cart, Imperial Whiz rated 2:06.1 for the 2150-metre stand to slice three-tenths of a second from Mass Destruction’s mantle.

    Mass Destruction established the record by winning the 2021 edition of the feature.

    Prepared by Melton trainer Danny Mullen, Imperial Whiz took his record to 21 wins and 41 placings from 195 starts for earnings of $224,872.

    Less than an hour later Ultimate Force out-toughed his rivals for trainer Shane Sanderson and concession driver, Ewa Justice.

    Caught three-wide before being settled in the ‘death seat’, Ultimate Force rated 1:58.8 over 1750 metres as Presidentialchange and Mach Brilliance filled the placings.

    The gelding’s time slashed eight-tenths of a second from Isitwrongtobexcited’d mark set last March.

    Foolish Pleasure completed the record hat-trick by rating 1:59.2 in the 2150-metre Pacing Cup.

    Breaking an eight-month drought from the winners’ circle, the Ashleigh Herbertson-trained gelding lowered Gollahman’s 2019 record by a second.
